I heard Hadoop is an emerging technology in Tech world.
I google it and found tons of information but unfortunatly not get clear Idea, Can some one tell me briefly what is Hadoop and how it is related to Java.
I read it is some what related to Java.
Can Java developers learn these technologies for better career growth.
And how much demand in recent days.


Thanks,
Sivva

I wouldn't say it's "new" since Hadoop has been around for a while. Since media coverage of big data and tools for processing big data has increased significantly in the last year or so, Hadoop is getting a lot more attention by the mainstream development community. As such, there are many opportunities for career growth in this area.

As for it's relation to Java, well, Hadoop is written in Java.
